We were sitting in the back room while he had a smoko, chatting as we always do.
I was telling him about how much I’d changed since moving to Melbourne.
- How much more empowered I am now,
- How much more confident I am in my identity, and
- How much happier I am with my life and direction.
He sat back with a laugh and said, “Well of course you’re different! That’s why you decided to take the risk and move down here. It sure as hell wasn’t to stay the same!”
His blue eyes twinkled with mirth and in his entire demeanor I heard, loud and clear as though he had spoken,
Go! Explore! Experiment!
Go! Embrace change! Be transformed!
Go! Become something different, someone new.
Change in anyway you desire, my dear, for I don’t need you to stay the same for me.
